New England Vacation #4
Well, we've seen New England ocean and lake - today we'll take a look at a river! This is the Sunday River in Newry, Maine, and crossing it, as the subject of the photo, is a covered bridge. I'm not sure of its name, or when it was built, but you can no longer drive over it. You can, however, get out and walk around on it and enjoy the beautiful forest and river views surrounding it. This is the first covered bridge I've ever seen, and I was thrilled to be able to find it using a book that had let us down at least twice already on this trip. We found this on a driving tour of western Maine that we took, which ended us up at the ocean views you saw the last two days. This place was very peaceful - not many cars went by on this very back-road state route. I enjoyed the reprieve very much.
